The Sewing Summit - Recap

Last weekend, I was fortunate enough to attend The Sewing Summit in Salt Lake City. It was an amazing, inspiring, fabulous, exhausting weekend. We packed a lot of activity into a very short time.

I started out the weekend with great intentions of documenting my experiences. I started during breakfast on Friday. I met Melissa and Ali for waffles and frites at Bruge's.

Bruge's Waffles & Frites
It's a tiny place, where we sat outside to eat, shivering just a little!

Vanilla liege waffle with creme fraiche and peaches.
(Just look at that scoop of cream!)

And since they served fries too, we had to have some with aioli and andalouse sauce.
(BTW, I was on vacation, so all food was calorie free!)

Now comes the funny part......I was having such a wonderful time that I apparently forgot to take pictures!

I only took 3 photos with people in them. And one of those was taken in a dark restaurant and isn't really viewable.

(Sorry to catch you with your mouth open Dana!)
Dana and I have been online friends for over 4 years and I jumped at the chance to meet her in real life. She is just as amazing in real life!

The amazing organizers of The Sewing Summit - Erin and Amy!
I cannot say enough good things about these wonderful gals. They did an incredible job of organizing this event. I know we're all looking forward to doing it again next year!

And now we get to the architecutal part of the post. I did manage to take some nice photos of some well known buildings around Salt Lake City.

Salt Lake City & County building

If you travel to Salt Lake City, I highly recommend this hotel. The accommodations were luxurious and the staff was very helpful and friendly.

So, now I'm home and nearly finished unpacking. My husband and son kept the house in reasonable shape while I was away. I only have one load of laundry left to do. And so much inspiration in my head that I have to get to sewing. SOON!

I did the same thing you did! I lugged my camera around, but took ZERO photos. Seriously so regretting that. Oh well. There's always next year, right?

Thanks for going to Bruge's & the thrift excursion with me!
